Currently I got interested in implementation of Precomputed Radiance Transfer.
I decided that occlusion representation (which is not trivial to compute) would be precomputed as CPU raytracing and stored as vertex buffer in addition to usual vertices. This representation would be stored as SH coefficients because I need to have information about occluded and unoccluded directions (probably 4 so additional
vec4 buffer). So these would store only unoccluded directions. I don't know yet how that would behave but using this foreach vertex should make it quite accurate despite being low frequency.
And as for color representation, computing it is quite trivial (transforming image representing skymap scattering and normals into SH set) and I want it to be dynamic so it would be done every frame. These would be 9 coefficients because why not.
So in reconstruction step I would have two sets of coefficients: precomputed occlusion (4 coefficients) and real time color (9 coefficients for RGB so in sum 27 coefficients).
Can I (and how) multiply them (as in the picture below from this paper) so in the result I would get representation with occluded color filtered out?
